Malcolm McDowell delivers a clever, tongue-in-cheek performance as Alex, the leader of a quartet of droogs, a vicious group of young hoodlums who spend their nights stealing cars, fighting rival gangs, breaking into people's homes, and raping women. While other directors would simply exploit the violent elements of such a film without subtext, Kubrick maintains Burgess's dark, satirical social commentary. We watch Alex transform from a free-roaming miscreant into a convict used in a government experiment that attempts to reform criminals through an unorthodox new medical treatment. The catch, of course, is that this therapy may be nothing better than a quick cure-all for a society plagued by rampant crime. A Clockwork Orange works on many levels--visual, social, political, and sexual--and is one of the few films that hold up under repeated viewings. Kubrick not only presents colorfully arresting images, he also stylizes the film by utilizing classical music (and Wendy Carlos's electronic classical work) to underscore the violent scenes, which even today are disturbing in their display of sheer nihilism. Ironically, many fans of the film have missed that point, sadly being entertained by its brutality rather than being repulsed by it. --Bryan Reesman, Amazon

I'm one fan who is entertained by the artistry of Kubrick's portrayal of brutality.  Again, as in Dr. Strangelove, Kubrick gets the subject matter into the viewer's head.  In this case, enough to give you a headache.  This movie is so disturbing (originally rated X for violence) that one viewing is never enough.   You have to see this movie many times to desensitize yourself to violence, allowing more subtle aspects of the work to shine through.  For example, underlying the violence is a dark comedy of extremely funny proportions.  Making thugs into cops, using the theme song from Singing in the Rain during a brutal beating, then having that song later be the reason Alex is arrested, all have hilarious overtones for societies that would prefer to turn a deaf ear to society's ills. --Scott Supak, BMP
